Joe Coiling Wins,
In Baseball Meet

By Mel Fineberg

Open Letter Day
Tuesday morning reflections on
Saturday afternoon's football game
in open letters to a few of those con-
cerned. {
Roland Joseph Savlla: Why aie
you scarcely mentioned when Michi-
gan's strength is? Your chief source
of publicity in three years of collegi-
ate football has been that you live
"eight hills from Here Renda" in the
mountains of West Virginia. Or to
put an old twist on an older re-
mark, "nine miles straight across or
15 by road." But we stand on record
that you are the best man in the
Wolverine forward wall, end to end
inclusive. Being in a definitive mood
We would, to describe you, put it this
way: "Roland Joseph Savilla-a man
harder than which to knock out of
the play there is none."
Reuben Kelto: You, a third string
center who made all the trips but
played not a jot last year, have, to
coin a phrase, or at least to refur-
bish an old one, come along leaping
and bounding. Absolutely unherald-
ed this year, you were shifted to
tackle. In two games this year when
you have spelled Bill Smith, you have
proved your self no less than amaz-
ing. Thanksgiving may have been
,moved but, against Iowa, you weren't.
Reuben, Reuben, we've been thinking
-you ought to be first string tackle.
* * * *
Joe Rogers: Where did you come
from? . How did you get so good all
of a sucIden? Where did you learn
to play your end so well on defense?
Ypu. amazed us, and we. think you
amazed the coaches, too. John Nich-
Olson;, albeit a fine end, may find
trouble getting back into the start-
ing line-up. From now on. it'll be a
battle behind Nick's blocking and
your defensive work.
* * * *
Ed Frutig: Please don't get hurt
anymore. It isn't worth it.
* * * * -
Coach Fritz Crisler: Why did you
wait so long before you did any sub-
stituting? At the end of the third
quarter Michigan was leading 27-7.
Up. to that point only 16 men had
been in the game. As time hurried
out on twinkling legs in the last
period, with all due respect to the
Zlnnick to Prasse pass combination,
it became apparent that Iowa was a
beaten team. Those kids on the
bench deserved a chance to play.
As we recall, your first substitution
came wtih three minutes to play.
Even the fourth stringers couldn't
have blown a three-touchdown lead
with mere minutes remaining. We're
thinking particularly now of Senior
Forrest "Butch" Jordan who didn't
play at all, junior Ed Christy and
sophomore Bob Ingalls who played
two minutes, senior Dave Strong who
didn't play at all. Didn't one of your
tackles express the team's sentiment
when, with 40 seconds to go, you
wanted to send him in. He said, as
the story goes (and this is merely
hearsay) "I'm not going to make an
ass of myself for a half minute."
Maybe it was just an oversight
Saturday. We're inclined to think
it was. We hope so.,
* * * *
Fred Trosko: You may not be the
original Joe Unsung but you belong
up in the front rank. Stepping in-
to Paul Kromer's shoes you were in a
tough spot. Everything you did Sat-

Regulars Are Given Rest;
Frutig's Knee Bruised;
Reserves Scrimmage
Taking an inventory of his twice-
victorious forces yesterday afternoon,
Coach Fritz Crisler enjoyed the
pleasant realization that his squad
is right now in its best shape of the]
season. Crisler's widest smile accom-
panied the return of Paul Kromer,
speedy halfback, whose torn liga-]
ment is well on the mend and who,
although he probably, won't face Chi-
cago Saturday, will be more than
ready for the Yale game.
Only two other players are even
slightly , under par; namely, regular
end Ed Frutig, who has a slightly
bruised knee and whom Crisler may
spare Saturday, and Al Wistert, re-
serve guard, whose sprained ankle
is almost completely back to normal.

Joe Colling, '41, scored 15 1/3 points
to win the baseball field meet title
yesterday afternoon at South Ferry
Field. Herb Kent, '42, placed second
with 13 5/6 points, and Jack Scoville,
'43, took third with 11 1/3 points.
The baseball target throw was won
by Pete Alexander with 39 points
which broke the old record of 33.
Colling took the catcher's throw for
accuracy, tying the old record of
seven out of ten. He also won the
fungo hit. Kent copped the base-
ball pitch with seven out of ten and
the bunt and run by 3.8 seconds.
Mase Gould won the distance throw
with a terrific heave of 320 feet.
Running bases was captured by How-
ard McClain with 16.3 seconds.
Ray Fisher had better keep his eye
on some of these boys.

Van Wagener
Tops Weber' s
Frosh Guards
The man who played for two years
beside Fred Janke in high school is1
now at Michiganattempting to carve
his name in the Wolverine hall of
fame alongside that of last year's grid
He is Coach Wally Weber's version1
of Milo Sukup, for he stands but five
feet six inches from terra firma, while
tipping the scales at 195 pounds. Su-
kup's measurements are prateically
the same.
A Rotund Guard
Bernard "Sparky" Van Wagener,
the man in question, is a rotund
guard on the freshman squad, and
in the conservative estimate of Assis-
tant Coach Keen "he's a fair ball
But he has been doing a lot of work
with that squat, corpulent frame of
his on the practice field, and it is
those men whom the coaches are
watching. Playing for Jackson High,
Van Wagener was chosen on the all,
5-A team and also as guard on the
all-State eleven in 1935, so he has
really deserved scrutiny by the coach-
ing staff.
Janke Was Good Teacher
Van Wagener, who speaks to
everyone looking toward the heavens,
confessed he "had a swell teacher
right next to me on the line," in Fred
Janke, his teammate in 1934-35.
There are very few men taking
engineering who dare to venture near
the football field, but "Sparky," as he
likes to be called is struggling with
a mechanical engineers' course. "Gee,"
he remarked as the shadows began to

Oosterbaan Send Squad
Through Easy Workout1
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan opened
his second season as head Wolverine
basketball coach when he sent his
early season squad headed by two'
senior lettermen, Captain and center
Jim Rae and forward Charlie Pink,
through a light conditioning practice
at the Intramural building last night.
Although showing signs of rust
from the long lay-off Captain Rae ap-
peared to be fully recovered from
the back ailment which hampered
him for the greater portion of the
last winter campaign.
Anot]Aer addition to the early birds
was diminutive Herb Brogan, who
regained his scholastic standing after
being declared ineligible during the
second semester last year. Brogan
as a sophomore stood out as one of
the squads most promising forwards
and should bolster the team at this
post in the forthcoming season.
Mike Sofiak, a junior and regular
forward, will not be able to report for
a while due to an ankle injury. John
Townsend, former Wolverine star, will
again serve as assistant coach.

grow on the practice field the other
night, "I've got 20 problems to do in
calculus." Just then Coach Keen
called, "Van Wagener, in at guard!"

Today marks the opening of soccer
competition for the International
Center group. The opening contest
pits the Chinese Club, defending
champion, against the Latin Ameri-
can team at South Ferry Field at
4 p.m.

looked especially good in leading
his team to victory.

Regulars Get Rest
Crisler gave his first-string arrayI
a deserved rest yesterday as only
the veteran end, John Nicholson, and
Kromer reported to Ferry Field. Nick
was in uniform and engaged in a
light workout since he is slightly be-
hind the rest of the squad after being
out of action for a week prior to the
Iowa game. Kromer, in a sweat suit,
jogged around the field and exercised
his injured limb. He has shaken off
mpost of the limp which was evident
Saturday as he entered the press box
to view the game.
' Joe Savilla, towering tackle, came
in for a good deal of unreserved
praise yesterday as Crisler remarked
that while Toh Harmon led the
backs, Savilla was the outstanding
man in the line, blocking a punt and
recovering two fumbles, all three
breaks resulting in a Michigan score.
Movies of the game revealed, accord-
ing to Crisler, that Forest Evashevski
and Capt. Archie Kodros were pillars
of strength in backing up the line,I
each man making exactly the same
number of tackles.
Chicago Pass Crazy
Assistant Coach Ray Courtright,
when asked what he thought of Chi-
cago after scouting them Saturday,
replied "Harvard looked great," which
seems to be enough said. However,
he reported that the Maroons hurled
no less than 36 passes, although com-
pleting but 6, and added that, Michi-
gan can expect even a greater num-
Two reserve squads -went through a
gruelling scrimmage for two hours
yesterday, Crisler stressing backfield
blocking. Hera Renda for the Reds
and Dave Strong for the Blues found
several large holes and scooted
through for substantial gains. Bill
Luther was clicking consistently with
his passes for the Blues during the
time he was in there, while the best
defensive work was turned in by
tackles George Ostroot and Dennis
Kuhn and guard Al Wistert.
Blocking and tackling will be ut-
most in Crisler's mind this week, with
the regulars due to resume work this
urday was compared to what Tom
Harmon did. And you suffered by
comparison. The same line 'that
opened up holes for Harmon refused
to block for you. And your own
blocking for the Hoosier Hammer
went unnoticed except by a few. You
and Evashevski and Westfall were
knocking 'em down all day but no
one saw it. You get our orchid.

Maroons To Concentrate

Shaughnessy's Maroons, still smart-
ing under the worst defeat in Univer-
sity of Chicago football history Sat-
urday when Harvard ran up a 61 to

against Michigan plays. The practice,
session indicated the Maroons would
concentrate on attempting to stop

Taking Pro Cage Offer
John Townsend, assistant basket-
ball coach and holder of the all-time
Michigan Big Ten scoring record, de-
nied last night that he had signed
a contract to play professional bas-
ketball with the Detroit Eagles.
Sunday,. a Detroit newspaper had
reported that the former Wolverine
captain had signed with the Eagles,
a club in the process of being formed
by Jake and William Mazur. Town-
send said that "while I have been
approached by the club I have signed
no contract."
